    nourish London: Hail The Kale Skincare

    I don’t know about you lot but my skin as been all over the place these past few months. What with the freezing temperatures then this scorching heatwave I’ve had breakout after breakout – something needed to be done.   I was super happy when nourish London got in touch to see if I would like to try out a few of their new products from the Kale skincare range. They didn’t need to ask me twice, I am down for anything that will sort my face out. Plus, as I’ve worked with nourish London before I just knew this line would be amazing.   The 3 wonderful products I…

    The Bear Trail, Devon: Review

    First off, how hot is it!!!? I’m literally melting right now and this has been the case for the past 4 days, I love the sun but this heat is on another level! We needed to cool ourselves off on Sunday and thankfully found the perfect spot to do so. We were very kindly invited to The Bear Trail near Cullompton, Devon. I have previously shared Bear Town which we loved and so we trialled the other attraction on site. What is The Bear Trail I hear you say? Well, let me tell you…   About The Bear Trail Set in 10 acres of beautiful countryside, The Bear Trail is…

    We Ate Out!! Zizzi, Taunton

    I just need to document that we ate out a couple of weeks ago. It was such a treat and so needed, a little slice of normality that was very much enjoyed by all. With life opening up once again, albeit to a very different “normal”, you really have to appreciate it in all its glory as you never know when it will (fingers crossed it won’t) be snatched away again. There aren’t many places near where we live to sit out and eat which serve a gluten free menu. I feel so high maintenance and awkward saying I need a gluten free option. It honestly makes me feel very…

    Oh Hi!

    Hi guys, long time eh!? I really don’t know where to begin in all honesty, what happened to the blogging life? Well, lots of things really. I thought this past year hadn’t really had that much affect on me, it was only until this year just recently that I took a step back and looked back in fact, on my life – bit deep for a Tuesday morning but go with me. Life, home schooling, being in lockdown, feeling anxious, feeling out of control and lots of time spent in my own head left me not really knowing who I was or what my purpose was. I think I just…

    How To: Gluten & Lactose Free American Style Pancakes

    Pancakes are most certainly not just for that one day in February! We love a good stack of those fluffy things at any time of the year. I have to admit, I’m all for the quick fix in life and tend to buy the shop bought (Aldi) thin pancakes for easy breakfasts for the kiddies. But, this year I wanted in on the fun, as I can’t have those yummy already made pancakes being Coeliac. I tried a new recipe – it is not ground breaking or anything I realise this – but, it is gluten and lactose free meaning I could enjoy them too. I have to say, I…

    A Sunday Well Spent… In Lockdown

    A Sunday well spent brings a week of content – well, lets hope so because we are back to home schooling! How was your half term? Our week went by so quickly, I spent most of it poorly. I did have a Covid test and thankfully it was negative, still worrying though. I know I speak for most of us when I say life is pretty suffocating right now. In all the time, raining outside, zero motivation to do anything remotely productive and we just want normal life to resume. We HAD to get out of the house on Sunday, the kids were like caged animals jumping on my sofas,…

    Galentine’s Day Gifts

    Valentine’s Day has been given a whole new meaning over the past couple of years, we now have Galentine’s Day. Not just for couples, we now celebrate our girl friends, sisters, mothers and anyone else who is close to our hearts. Not to leave anyone out I’ve found some amazing gifts for your girls this Galentine’s Day.   Loungewear is all we are seeing right now, and why not. We are in a national lockdown, spending all our days pottering about the house – we need comfort right!? From fluffy slippers to oversized joggers and of course a good old mug thrown in, these treats are perfect for gifting to…

    What I’ve Been Wearing This Winter/Lockdown

    Well hello!! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted anything on my blog and that makes me so sad, but you know how it has been! Most days I’m just surviving, like so many of us juggling home learning, being a mum, staying on top of the house/chores and running a little few side projects. Anyway, I really wanted to publish a light hearted post, so thought I would share some outfits. I realise we are mid way through a national lockdown but it is still nice to get dressed and put your face on. Here are some of my most worn outfits of Winter, I am of course,…

    Top Home & Cleaning Essentials

    I have always enjoyed cleaning and freshening up the house. Even before the children arrived I would love nothing more than finishing work on a Friday, getting home to blitz the Cottage, Flat or Bungalow I was living in. Starting the weekend with a fresh clean home, candles burning and that proper clean smell – all cosy! Over the years I have found various cleaning and home essentials, products have come on so far from the days of the house smelling of bleach. We have fancy disinfectants, toilet cleaners which aren’t that awful pine smell, the launch of wax burners and a whole empire of cleaning addicts on Instagram (myself…

    Days Out With Kids: Bear Town, Devon

    I realise we have just gone into Lockdown 3 and are homebound, but I really wanted to share a fantastic little gem we visited just before Christmas – Bear Town. Amelie and Charlie received some money from my Mum for Christmas and instead of wasting it on another slime kit or plastic toy, we decided to book them into Bear Town which is located between Exeter and Cullompton in Devon. Bear Town is situated on the same site as the ever famous Bear Trail (which we are absolutely visiting when Lockdown is over). Bear Town is a fantastic and unique role play adventure town for children aged between 1 –…
